My husband injured his calves about 2 years ago and despite loads of investigation (including seeing a specialist surgeon) and physio they are still really tight and he pulled one again 2 weeks ago after just a mile of a run. He has had good periods (he managed to train for an complete an off-road sprint triathlon!) but is finding it very frustrating.
He has bought a foam roller (on the suggestion of a physio) but isn't sure how often he should use it and how many "rolls" he should do each session - especially as he finds the rolling quite painful.
He is off to see a physio again next week, but i just wondered if anyone out there in lovely runnersworld can offer any advice?
